If you click on "settings" found near the top right hand corner of the page, then scroll down that page a bit, you should find the "ignore" link on the left hand side.

There is also a "friends and contacts" link but not sure if you are notified should someone in your list post. Hopefully someone else can help you with more information on that one.

Is it possible to have the name of the last poster on each thread on the home page.

I find it not that straightforward. Cheers Bf.

Yep, I like the last poster noted as well Joe, thanks.

Hi Joe,

A quick comment on the new style, I am finding the array of blues quite distracting especially the lack of contrast, perhaps you could just stick to 3 blues in in the text.

Also on the home page, could the thread titles be highlighted more with a darker colour and bolded more or a tad bigger font.

Maybe it's just my colour vision weaknesses, but the light blue in particular is hard for me to pickup, particularly if they are in heading that ought to be more prominent.

That's my comment also. I'm struggling with all this blue on the screen.

Joe this new version is clearly more powerful and versatile, but I find myself yearning for the white screen backgrounds of the previous one.

Joe, I`ve noticed that on the home page the are 5 posts on `The future of Aust Property.`, by Quincy, then robots, vicki, robots then greebly. as of 2.58pm

Seems a waste of space when the last post is important.

That would then give posts to other threads the chance to be read.

Does that make sense? Bf

After many years screen time, I find brightness strains the eyes after awhile. On all my charts I uses light to medium greys and have personally experienced less eye strain than with the bright, reflective white background.

I use New Posts and Today's Posts nowadays on ASF to find material of interest.

I tried to make this new design easy on the eyes - not too bright and not too much contrast. Unfortunately, issues of colour are ultimately a matter of personal preference and this kind of feedback is the hardest to make decisions about because what one person dislikes, another may like. What one person finds hard on the eyes another may find clear and easy to read.

I would be very interested in the views of other ASF members on what aspects of the current colour scheme they like/do not like, as once I can detect some kind of consensus or general agreement it's much easier to decide what changes to make.

Yes, to be honest I'm not entirely happy with that aspect of the front page either but at the moment I am somewhat limited by the code that already exists for each module on the front page. I am currently looking at getting some additional custom coding work done in an attempt to improve that section of the front page. It is just a matter of tracking down someone who knows this forum software intimately and can code what I require.

Many thanks to all for the continued feedback. It is all food for thought and very useful in helping me make decisions about any changes to the current design.

Glad you appreciate my comments ( :) )

But you did not change this "italic quote" thing.

I have 26" screen but "il" or "ll" letters next to each ohter almost blurr themselves into blob not only in quote insert window, but also on reply area, especially that letters are not much darker than the background.

Human mind is great thing and can read with some crap in it even if letters are misplaced, but it is not as pleasurable as it could be.

I would be interested in knowing if this is an issue for anyone else. Are there others who prefer the italicised text in quotes in posts?

I'm not yet convinced that this is something that needs to be changed so I would be grateful for any additional feedback on the issue.

Joe just a thought on colours and colour blindness.

There are two major types of color blindness: those who have difficulty distinguishing between red and green, and those who have difficulty distinguishing between blue and yellow.

It seems the shades of blue may be a pretty common problem... if I'm reading this right and... well, maybe I should do a colour blindness test before I comment further! :eek:

Joe I think it would depend a lot on the monitor size people are using. I have a 19" monitor, but any smaller and I would have problems reading the italics. But italics in quotes has a certain literary elegance that I like, and avoids unintentional plagiarism. Cheers, Logique

For some reason, on my iPad, i get a bar going across the middle of the "New Posts" page.

Anyone else have this problem?

It has a little men at work sign at the right side of the bar.

Have you tried a different screen resolution or display size? I am using my max 1,600 x 1,200 resolution but have the 'Display' set at 125% for best viewing for me... except for all those shades of blue... I think they are blue... they look like blue... I recall I was told as a kid I had mild colour blindness and a quick online test suggests it's Red, Green. :confused: :eek:

PS: The darker blues are good for me, such as this page layout, although the white background woud be a better contrast and probably a bit less eye strain. Checking the home page again, the main issue for me is the black fonts stand out way above the light blue and green headings.

Hi Joe

In the "Quick Links" "Subscribed Threads" list, is it possible to squeeze in the "Number of Posts "Views" information displayed in the "New Posts" and "Todays Posts" lists?

regards

Hi first off new website looks awesome.
The only thing i liked better about the old one was the recently updated threads. i thought the old website was good showing the last 15 or so threads that had been commented in, rather than the last 15 or so comments that had been posted in the threads (if that makes sense)

anyhows nice job :)

Hi all,

I prefer that too.

Is, or will there be a way, for me to configure it to display in the "old-fashioned" manner ?

Hi Joe, noticed that the last updated section switched back to recent posts instead of recent changed threads - is this deliberate?

Will look into this and see if it's posible.

Yes, I changed it back as I wasn't happy with the Recently Updated Threads widget because I wasn't able to get it to show a preview of the last post in the thread rather than the first. I am not satisfied with the Recent Posts widget either and am looking to get a custom solution coded but it may be a little while coming.
